After I was hit by a truck on my bicycle I called Robert Anderton to explore my options in making an insurance claim. Although my injuries were not severe enough to require hiring an attorney, he kindly gave me advice about how to proceed in negotiations with the insurance company of the person who hit me. When I called him back with further concerns, he returned my call late in the day (which must have been the end of a long work day) and helped me further.
I was impressed by his generosity in giving me pro bono advice and by his expertise, since he himself is a bike commuter who knows about injuries from personal experience and can be trusted to understand the issues.
After I presented Robert with the details of my bike accident and the proposed settlement from the insurance company, Robert politely declined to take my case.
However, he did provide me with case law, background and reference materials to enable me to successfully DOUBLE my property damage claim.
I truly appreciate Robert's sage judgement in getting me to accept the insurance company's offer and I think he went out of his way to help me during our phone consult.
While I hope I'm never again in another bicycle accident, I know who I will use, without hesitation, to represent my interests: Robert Anderton!
Bob was fantastic to work with -- open, informative, communicative. He dealt with the uncooperative insurance company of the driver who doored me, and I am grateful that I did not have to deal with these people myself.

Without being too specific... he was very thorough and effective with communication between hospital staff, insurance companies and to myself letting me know what was going on and why.
Working with someone like Bob made me feel confident that I had someone very professional and knowledgeable protecting my back.
While being in a situation where I needed a lawyer for a fairly serious injury (from a vehicle while bicycling).... was by no means pleasant... it made all the difference having a lawyer that was pleasant and fun to be around. His staff at Anderton Law Office is also very kind and professional.
Setting aside the professionalism, Bob is a great person to be around which is why I rate him so highly.

Mr. Anderton was very patient and helpful in my case. I'm pretty sure mine was one of his stranger cases but he and his staff worked hard to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. He's a great lawyer and a lot of fun to work with.

Mr. Anderton kept me apprised of the case at every turn by explaining everything clearly, ccing me on all correspondence, and advising me in order to help me make decisions I was comfortable with. His superb communication (verbal and documented) between all parties left me in no doubt that he was on top of the case the entire time. His professionalism and quality work fulfilled my goal in hiring an attorney, which was to get the care I needed and avoid the prolonged headache that process can cause. The results were excellent and I have already referred two of my friends to him.

After getting hit by two cars in a month on my bike and dealing with the insurance companies myself for a while I lawyered up and contacted Mr. Anderton through mutual networks. He took so much stress off my shoulders and helped me navigate the best of a bad situation. I am now a shameless promoter of his services and hand out his spoke card to any biker I meet. I hope to never get hit by another car, but I know who I'm calling first if I do.

Simply put, Bob was a delight to work with. He picked my case up after another attorney stepped back, and stuck with me for the year and a half it took before the dispute was settled. He stuck up for me and really understood my position. I could not think higher of Bob and would recommend him to anyone.

Bob explained his process and what we should expect of him in our first meeting. He took all of the financial headaches off our plate and allowed us to focus on the real work of getting well and managing the leave I took from work. This support was a huge benefit to me and my family. Bob was very quick to act and had gotten agreement from both the offending drivers insurance and my insurance to put the full personal injury protection amount into his trust within a few days and then we were able to simply send any medical bill we received to him and he paid it from the trust. He also negotiated with my employers insurance to cover my medical costs until my claim was settled. I was very pleased with Bob's knowledge of the entire process from the law to the workings of the medical community and the insurance community. If I had been forced to work the issues myself we would have lost a lot of sleep and money. In the end, most of our costs, medical, equipment, legal fees and incidentals, were addressed in my claim. I highly recommend Bob to anyone who has been injured by a motorist while cycling. He is an expert in the field and a true partner in the process.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer than Bob. The work he put into my case went above and beyond my expectations. He is a great communicator, I always felt informed and he answered all my questions clearly. Overall, and excellent lawyer and great person!
